Shepherd E3 Mini-Session. E3 refers to Empower, Equip, and Encourage. At this mini-session, we will focus on prayer in small groups. How to gather prayer requests? How to pray aloud together without being weird or manipulative to those that don't feel comfortable? How to not just "pray real quick" to "wrap things up?" How to set aside time for prayer when you have limited time in your small group? And so forth!
